Benefits of using the Nextiva App: A great way to work remotely

The Nextiva App gives you the ability to communicate with your customers and collaborate with your colleagues from anywhere, including situations where you need employees to work from home for an extended period. With these tools, you don’t need to be in your physical office to stay productive. You and your coworkers can continue to communicate, collaborate, and serve customers as if you were working side-by-side.

The Nextiva App is included in Pro Plus and Enterprise voice plans. If you have the Pro plan, please contact us to add it.
